Home Buys Opens in Florence

A ribbon was cut this week on the new Home Buys store in Florence.

It's the company's first location in Kentucky.

As first reported by The River City News in July, Home Buys now operates on Connector Drive where Toys R Us previously operated.

HomeBuys is known for discount prices on brand-name items. It was founded in 2015 with locations in the Ohio cities of Columbus, Dayton, and North Canton.

“Retail has been a large part of our lives,” co-founder Karen Waldmann said earlier this summer. “And obviously we’re proud to be helping communities by adding jobs and offering affordable name brand products to our customers.” 

At the ribbon-cutting this week, the store manager described Home Buys as like an Ollie's or Big Lots "on steroids".
